Comedian Insults Meghan McCain After She Criticizes Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech


Meghan McCain joined the list of right-leaning Americans who were displeased with actress Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech Sunday night.

The Fox News commentator warned liberals via Twitter that speeches similar to Streep’s were the reason Donald Trump won the presidency.

While more than 10,000 people “liked” her tweet, television personality Billy Eichner attacked McCain for her stance.

Eichner called McCain a “moron” and said she wrongfully interpreted Streep’s main point.

“Um she asked him not to make fun of disabled people and advocated for the freedom of the press and the arts you f—ing moron,” he tweeted.

McCain shot back sarcastically, telling Eichner that “calling republicans like me ‘f—ing morons’ is a great way for Hollywood to bridge the cultural divide. Enjoy your bubble.”

The comedian then went on a rant, taking shots at McCain’s family and wealth while insulting Trump supporters.

“… I have no desire to ‘bridge the cultural divide’ with ignorant voters who don’t respect other cultures!” Eichner tweeted.

McCain, however, had the last word.

Eichner co-stars with Julie Klausner in the Hulu series Difficult People, in which they play “two struggling and jaded comedians living in New York City” who “seemingly hate everyone but each other.”

He also hosts Billy on the Street, a comedy game show that airs on truTV.

Streep, who won the Cecil B. Demille award at Sunday’s Golden Globes, took her acceptance speech as an opportunity to talk politics instead of reflecting on her career.

“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good — there was nothing good about it — but it was effective and did its job,” Streep said, referring to the time Trump allegedly mocked a disabled reporter, which the candidate has repeatedly denied and did so again Monday on Twitter. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie; it was in real life.”

She also said, “All of us in this room belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it — Hollywood, foreigners and the press.”
